We just got back from taking Bailee to band camp in Powell (about 2-1/2 hours from here) and had the best weekend we've had in a long time. We spent most of our time in Cody, which is such a fun little town. Tons to do and see! She was excited, but I think a bit nervous about what the week would entail, so we tried to reassure her that she would have a great time and that she would probably make all kinds of new friends. She was fortunate enough to score a 1 at her regional festival and so she earned a partial scholorship to Yellowstone Summer Music Camp - woo hoo!!! Pretty expensive camp so every little bit helped for sure :)
This page is of her first-ever band concert and for 6th graders who had never played an instrument before this year, they were awesome. I was really impressed! I love these pictures of her b/c I was sitting quite a ways back and set my camera to no-flash, zoomed in on her and snapped away. The lighting for the most part is natural and I was pretty impressed with how the pics turned out. We are SO very proud of Bailee and the beautiful young woman that she has become. She's awesome!!
The strips of patterned paper were cut from 4 different pieces of patterned paper and then pieced next to each other so as to create a bit of a border across the bottom. Then, those wonderful letters are Thickers - love those things!!! There's the appropriate amount of blingage on there and a little chipboard embellishment. So what'dya think?
Hope your week goes well. I'll have some more to share later - hugs!!! Brenda
